The goal of the Summer Lunch Program is to fulfill the nutritional needs of low income youth during the summer months with daily distribution of free USDA sponsored nutritional lunches. Distribution sites include both city and rural areas. The Summer Lunch Program serves youth age 1-18 free daily meals from June to August. IYS has several sites throughout the city including Library sites as well as throughout several neighborhood parks.
Park and Play gives youth physically engaging and mentally enriching activities. These activities are pursued at the park during the Scheduled Summer Lunch hour, and gives youth a free way to engage with other youth in the parks in a fun game or activity.
